Report: Sullinger Injured

The Not Good Gray Box is back.

Bob Baptist of the Columbus Dispatch is reporting Jared Sullinger will miss tomorrow's game against Texas Pan-American - and maybe more - due to injury. 

It sounds like a possible back issue though the university has not released any specifics about his injury or the length of time he could be expected to miss. 

Since Baptist's report, Doug Lesmerises tweeted he spoke to someone close to Sully who indicated the injury is not serious and not a long term concern. 

Hold your breath, Buckeye fans. 

UPDATE 6:15PM: OSU has released a statment indicating Sullinger experienced back spasms during Duke game and will be evaluated further next week. He's definitely out tomorrow.

UPDATE 11:55PM: Satch Sullinger, Jared's father, appeared on 10TV this evening, confirming the back spasms and said they may be linked to plantar fasciitis.
